basically point 1 to remember is: olsr is more or less agnostic to  
what the lower levels are doing since it is level 3.

That said, yes there are features in atheros based cards where you  
can have ad-hoc and managed mode at once in parallel on one card.  
However, I never tested that myself. Maybe somebody else can report  
on that.
